Herencia v. Guzman, 219 U.S. 44 (1910)
Herencia v. Guzman
Submitted November 29, 1910
Decided December 19 1910
219 U.S. 44
It is not the province of this Court on writ of error to reverse if dissatisfied with the verdict of the jury; if there was evidence proper for the consideration of the jury, objection that the verdict was against the weight of evidence or that excessive damages were allowed cannot be considered.
An amendment to a bill of exceptions, after bond on appeal had been given and approved, so as to make the record conform to the fact as to the conditions under which certain testimony introduced by plaintiff in error on the trial was given held not error, as it was not unjustified or objected to and the exception related simply to the inclusion of such testimony in the record.
A judgment cannot be set aside on an exception to the refusal of the trial court to allow an expert to testify where the record does not show what testimony the witness was expected to give or that he was qualified to give any.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
